For our first episode the Holler sat down with Grant Mills from http://www.ruralup.org to talk about their coding and programming initiatives across Eastern Kentucky. We cover a lot of ground in this one, from 13 year olds making $60k per year with programming skills to an untapped marketing and web design market in our region. Listen in and then join the conversation @ theholler.org.

“What if Kentucky was the hot-bed for computer programming?”
So… how do we get this snowball rolling down the hill? — What can the ARI team do to help? — @professorparsons I think this is exactly the direction we need to go. I love the conversation…
Thanks @pgreen. We’re going to walk with Rural UP, as well as design some courses for the Holler, about a summer program and some programming bootcamps that use the Holler to sustain long term collaboration and learning.
I teach computer science and my students have just started learning html.
@joyneace That’s great! What types of projects will they build? We could feature some of their work on the Holler, or throw out some coding challenges once they are far enough along.
They will be building a website that will require the use of databases. They will get to be creative about content. These students already know some Python and have created games in Snap!
That’s great! We should do a profile on your class for the Holler!
